I moved to Hong Kong in January 2008 for a position as Executive Chef.
I had the first few days free,
and wandered around near the provided serviced apartment in Causeway Bay.
It is as crowded as it looks. Someone once walked right over the tops of my feet.

Hong Kong still has open air markets and food stalls, but these are disappearing.
On many corners there are 7-elevens and Circle Ks.

Hong Kong surely has the best BBQ!
And some of the best views!

Fresh fruit and vegetables are available all year round in Hong Kong.
Bay Berries are native to Asia and are in season.
I purchased 3 pieces for $4HK – around $.50US – were priced at $30HK per pound.
Blueberries are available throughout the year from different corners of the world.
I bought blueberries this week in Welcome, 4.4oz/125 grams for around $2US from Hurst’s Berry Farm in Sheridan, Oregon, USA.
Cheap eats are healthy and abundant in Hong Kong!
